Aloha, Ohana Mama! Your friendly neighborhood busy bee is back, ready to buzz the latest and greatest of what’s going on in the blogosphere! There’s been some chat going on that the blogosphere hasn’t been as “busy” due to the holidays. I think we are all SO busy that we are forgetting to leave comment love! So visit these great spots and leave a comment! I am sure they will reciprocate!
The Best of DIY has some wonderful ideas for creative, handmade Christmas and Thanksgiving ideas! She has example photos on her site and links you to the directions on how to do it yourself!
Check out these ADORABLE Turkey Pops (shaped like turkeys, not made with turkey).
And Christmas will be here before you know it, so you might want to get started on this Felt Christmas tree!
MEME: The UnMom has a meme called Random Tuesday Thoughts. Since it is hosted by UnMom you know it’s going to be … interesting! Stop by and find out how her mind wanders tomorrow. You can catch last week’s version here. It is co hosted by The Neurotic Mom! You can read her randomness here.
And it is totally easy to participate in this meme! Honestly…it’s just random thoughts. *I wonder how many people are reading this* See how easy!!!
For a while now I have seen mention of Twilight the book and/or movie on about a third of the blogs I visit. I am even seeing it infiltrate Etsy! Here is one example, found in the Etsy shop “Nothing Like It”. It’s an I Run With Vampires coaster. I really need to read these books, eh?
Another cool blog/Etsy combo is Kay’s K9s. Kay creates needle point sculptures of pets! Her work is amazing – just check out her Etsy shop! And a portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Ontario SPCA!
Finally, a few days ago a spied some wonderful, pink ornaments at Tizzalicious Crafts & Cuteness! I think they would look wonderful on a white, tabletop Christmas tree! You can see the Santa Likes Pink set at her Etsy shop!
